Sherlock: Have you always been this observant? I’m asking that quite sincerely, I’m wondering if exposure to my methods has helped you in any way. Bell: Well, actually, before you came along I never closed a case before, neither had the rest of the department, most of us were thinking of packing up, leaving and lettin’ the city fend for itself.
Joan: What are those? Sherlock: Blankets, extra blankets, to be precise. I saw them in a closet, and I realized I haven’t needed them of late, not with all the hot-blooded company I’ve been enjoying. So, I thought we might take them to the park and see if anyone was in need. I understand it’s going to be quite cold tonight. Joan: I’ll get my coat.
How you feel shouldn’t be her problem. After everything that happened to me, all my relationships were different. My family and my friends, they were just trying to help but the look on their faces it— it just reminded me that it had happened. It’s one of the reasons that I wanted to start over. I know I haven’t been here very long but I do know that perception matters. If she doesn’t want to look weak than she shouldn’t have to.
Your insights made that arrest possible. You are progressing, a pleasure to watch. Normally, I ask you to keep your music at a reasonable level during my reading hours, but tonight feel free to enjoy it at whatever volume you wish.
Kitty: Thank you for coming. It’s like I said on the phone, he just won’t stop. You got any ideas? Joan (to Sherlock): You’re not planning to destroy the computer, are you? Sherlock: No, I’m not planning to destroy the bloody computer. Joan (to Kitty): Just ride it out. If he starts hitting things, use the fire extinguisher on him.
Sherlock: Big Teddy, kneecapped, button men, from where does this expertise come? Joan: Grade school. I grew up in Queens, there were kids around who said their dads were in the mob. I was curious and it was fun to follow it all in the papers. The mob was like a soap opera back then.
